Savage Grace Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Adapted from the nonfiction book by [[Performer~P410081~Natalie Robins~natalierobins]] and [[Performer~P410080~Steven M.L. Aronson~stevenmlaronson]], [[Performer~P96626~Tom Kalin~tomkalin]]'s Savage Grace recounts the true crime tale of the death of Barbara Baekeland. [[Performer~P199938~Stephen Dillane~stephendillane]] stars as Brooks Baekeland, the son of the man who invented Bakelite, one of the early forms of plastic. As the family fortune begins to decrease after years of wealth, Brooks marries Barbara ([[Performer~P50325~Julianne Moore~juliannemoore]]), who desires to mingle in the highest social circles. They have a child, Antony, who is homosexual. Antony grows up to kill Barbara, in part because Barbara takes a personal interest in "curing" her son of his orientation. This was [[Performer~P96626~Kalin~tomkalin]]'s first film since 1991's [[Feature~V48203~Swoon~swoon]], a film about the infamous Leopold and Loeb murders. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
